The sacral chakra is instrumental in developing flexibility in life. It is the chakra responsible for emotions, sensuality, and creativity. The element associated with the sacral chakra is water. Water is ever flowing and endlessly flexible. Flexibility is essential in thoughts and emotions. It supports personal expansion and the formation of identity. The location of the sacral chakra is just below the navel, which is also the location of the womb. The womb is filled with water and it is where life begins. The driving force in life is pleasure, and the enjoyment that comes through all of our senses. When the sacral chakra is opened, our senses are engaged and we are better able to feel and enjoy the world around us, as well as the emotions inside of us.
